A man has been charged with murder almost eight months after a body was discovered in a river.

The remains of 43-year-old Darryl Fitch were recovered from a stretch of the River Gryffe - known as Locher Water - in Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire, in July last year.

It was believed Mr Fitch, from Paisley, had been camping in the area.

William Cameron, 37, appeared at Paisley Sheriff Court charged with murder.

The accused, who is from the town, made no plea or declaration and was remanded in custody.

He will appear in court again on March 16.
